Old Trondhjem Church is located near Lonsdale, Minnesota in Rice County. Built by Norwegian immigrant farmers and placed on a hilltop with views of the rolling countryside, the first church on this spot was constructed in 1878. In 1899, it was redesigned and rebuilt incorporating parts of the first church.
